ROBERT PATTINSON may be starring in one of the biggest films of the year and set to become a movie classic, but the British actor has not been holding back on social media this week. He has been promoting his upcoming film, The Batman, and sharing funny, cute, and weird photos with his fans.
The actor’s most recent post, a picture of himself dancing with a group of friends at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in California, has already racked up over 16.5 million views.
The photos were taken on day two of the three-day festival, which took place between April 16 and April 18. Pattinson’s post on his official Instagram page showed him in a colorful array of outfits, dancing and laughing with his buddies. He was wearing a black and white striped shirt and black jeans with white sneakers, all paired with a white baseball cap and sunglasses, matching white T-shirts, and a white belt.
Alongside the picture, Pattinson wrote: “One of the highlights of the weekend. Thanks for having me.”
Since then, the post has been shared over 25,000 times and received a huge response from fans who want to see more of Pattinson at the festival.
While he was grateful for the support, the actor was keen to keep the focus on his upcoming film. “I’ll try and keep sharing little sneak peeks,” he wrote. “The festival was an amazing experience and meeting so many new people.”
He continued: “Can’t wait to show you guys the rest of it once it’s finished.”
Fans were quick to point out that the photos from Coachella 2019 were reminiscent of a scene from the hotly anticipated new movie The Batman, which sees Pattinson in the titular role. The British actor will reprise his role as the legendary DC Comics character for a second time in the upcoming film, which also stars JUDITH GREGORY, CHARLEE CHAN, and RICHARD ARONSON.
The comparison was uncanny. Pattinson’s dancing was even reminiscent of the character he’s playing. In The Batman, the actor’s character uses his stealth skills and strategy to avoid detection while breaking into the villain’s hideout, and later, his penthouse. During the spectacular dance sequence that closes out the movie, Batman takes on multiple enemies and shows off his moves.
The similarity in poses and outfits between Batman and the Coachella photos is undeniable. Just like Batman, Pattinson’s character in The Batman wears a mask to hide his identity.
Pattinson was undoubtedly having a good time at Coachella, but he made it clear he was there to promote his latest film. He posted on his Instagram page before and after the Coachella performance, where tickets for the film were sold, noting that his “only purpose” for the trip was to “promote #TheBatman.””This week has been incredible. Can’t thank you guys enough for the love & support. Next stop London,” he wrote.
The actor has been quiet on social media since the end of April, though he did post a photo on his Instagram page this week, as well as a video, showing him swimming in a pool while surrounded by beautiful women.
With just under three months to go until the premiere of The Batman, we can expect more entertaining stories from the actor. What’s your favorite Robert Pattinson Instagram post? Let us know in the comments below!
